    Does this mean Arik Gilbert is primed and ready to go? That's me and my rose-colored glasses hoping against hope...

    Because @JimWallace, the wide receivers all know that with Bennett playing QB, they will not get a chance to really show off their skills. Bennett won us a Natty and I'm forever grateful. But he just cannot do the things with the football that JT Daniels can do. And all the receivers know this. That's why you kept hearing non-receivers (even defensive players) sticking up for Bennett, but you never heard a wide receiver raving about him. It's also, in my opinion, why you don't see UGA signing really top-flight wide receivers. They're nothing without someone who can get them the ball, either in space or by throwing them open. Bennett cannot consistently do that. The players know the truth. It's not a knock on Bennett, it's just the way it is. We may lose one or two more top guns before it's over.

    Because be doesn't have the chemistry with Bennett. He would have stayed if JT had not gone into the portal.

    Bennett only threw19 times per game. Game manager means best receivers go elsewhere.hope we have a top defense again.

    Kirby has backed himself in a corner now. With Stetson coming back how does he not start the national champ at qb next year? Hopefully he plays the best QB and not the best game manager.

    This may hurt UGA at receiver. Burton bolting is not good. He was dynamic. Very sorry to hear this news. Hope he does not play against UGA.

    Will you Bennett Bashers disappear. So why didn’t Bennett throw more passes and score more points? Answer (and this is a fact), he was annihilating almost every opponent by mid 3rd quarter so we quit passing and ran the clock out. Simple fact and his QB rating was amazing.

    CKS needs to put a tourniquet on the transfer portal wound! We need Terrance Edward or Hines to talk some sense into these guys!

    Oh man, I didn't se this one coming. When he was healthy the kid could be a weapon, but at times we didn't use him.

    Somebody offer him a NIL deal, this kid is going to be trouble somewhere.

    Bennett bashers. Kirby's the only coach in the country that would let his 5star hold a clipboard all year. Let him leave and now the receivers are going with him.

    Well Kirby you have your Qb back so get your old ass out on the field and catch his passes since your running receivers off with this boneheaded decision

    So, how many more games would we have won with that 5-star starting? Only 1 possible win in the SEC championship, but more than likely we would have lost more games including the NC, but we will never know.
